Why Retrain with a Master's in Early Childhood Studies?

The MA Early Childhood Studies course at the University of Bolton is designed to nurture the future leaders of the early years sector. If you want to take your career to the next level, this master’s programme could be the ideal way to retrain with new skills.

Not only do we provide a positive and friendly learning environment for ambitious Postgraduates, but we rank as one of the top universities in the country. We’re in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), as well as the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables (2021).

Here are just some of the ways an advanced Early Childhood Studies course could help you:

Move into management and leadership

Retraining with a master’s degree is the best way to get ready for a role in management. Our programme focuses on cultivating critical analysis and communication skills, both of which are essential for a career in leadership.

Develop your knowledge in a global context

Our modules will help you delve deeper into topics such as equality and diversity, inclusivity for children, and early years curriculum development. And all of this is taught through a global viewpoint, giving you the tools to develop your critical reflection, analysis and evaluation skills from a universal perspective.

Access a range of job opportunities

While many of our graduates advance into managerial or senior leadership positions after earning their master’s, others take an interest in alternative career paths. These include counselling, occupational therapy, social work, teaching and education, community support, child protection, consultancy, and other occupations.

Pursue a research degree

With an MA in Early Childhood Studies under your belt, you can move onto further study and do a research degree (MPhil, EdD or PhD). This can lead to jobs in university research, or teaching in higher education.
